BeOS & Derivatives Today there are many operating systems available. Every vendor or community round it tries to make it as good as possible. Having different goals, different legacy and different cultures, they succeed in it more or less. We (end users) end up with big selection of operating systems, but for us the operating systems are usually compromise of the features that we would like to have. So is there an operating system that would fit all the needs of the end user? Is is the BeOS clone Haiku?

*adds a bunch of gloss, bubbles, gradients, fades, opacity, bouncing alerts, huge ass widgets, 1024x1024 icons*

Better? ;) Don't hit me ;)

I adore the simplistic nature of the UI. It stays out of the way, mitigates the amount of screen realestate it uses up and lets you focus on the apps at hand. Like it should.

The amount of wasted screen on most mainstreams OS/UIs is amazing to me.

...I still love NeXTs interface ;)

*edit* C'mon, guys. There was NO reason to mod her post into oblivion.
